BMW Group Australia and RMIT proudly present the second edition of #YourMelbourne, a future-focused sandbox where you can imagine, research, design, and present your vision of Melbourne in the year 2030, in line with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
YOUR CITY. YOUR VISION.
From a vibrant CBD to sprawling suburbs each filled with unique character, Melbourne presents a unique challenge for the future mobility designers. How will technology change the way we work and live? How will this beautiful city survive and thrive into the future? We’ve asked the question; now it is your turn to put your creative spirit to the test.
Submissions for the YourMelbourne competition is now closed. Thank you for participating.
BMW GROUP SUSTAINABILITY.
BMW Group is committed to sustainability that extends throughout the company’s entire value chain. Our claim: The greenest electric car in the world will be produced by BMW.
This objective centres on reducing lifecycle CO2 emissions per vehicle by at least a third by 2030 compared with 2019 levels. The strategy includes cuts to CO2 emissions by at least 80 per cent in production, 40 per cent in the use phase and at least 20 per cent in the supply chain.
The aluminium in our cars is made using the power of the sun.
Our batteries see second lives as storage units for hydro-electric energy after their time in our cars.
We are the only car company committed to this circular approach to resources – and our pledge is to avoid rather than offset emissions altogether.

Your project can include future mobility into and out of the city, including (but not limited to) main traffic veins such as networks and systems that supply the city with much-needed labour, goods and services.
